The Uproar of a Council Member

by Jamil Thiyabi from Al-Hayat

Doctor Abdullah Al-Tuweirky wrote in the Saudi newspaper Al-Watan two consecutive articles that he entitled "Media Accountability Law." The media have the right to monitor the performance of state apparatuses, to highlight positive behavior and to expose negativities in the hope of achieving reform. This is as long as reporting does not offend or threaten the regime, the constitution, or the nation's faith, security and stability. This right is equally protected for the TV series "Tash Ma Tash" or any other honest work of art.
